I like zack wylde, like BLS, and I think he's an incredible guitarist, but how can you beat Rand Rhoads? It's like comparing Jack in the Box to the Outback Steakhouse... they're both good, but one just blows the other away.

i went with Zakk because whenever Randy did a pinch harmonic it sounded like total asshole.

Otherwise they both have same shredding skills, Randy has better tone and is more creative, but Zakk doesnt piss me off live.

thats only because zakk use alot more distortion then randy therefore making the harmonics sounds stronger.

EDIT: ^Not to mention Randy wasn't using active EMGs.

I like Zakk and all, but Randy had that neoclassical shred thing going, and it fit Ozzy's style really well.

But Zakk does have his moments, No More Tears is brilliant, Randy just blows him out of the water.

I don't even understand how you can compare. My friend thinks that Zakk Wylde is better than Rhoads. It makes me so mad to argue with him about it. He once said Zakk was better than Steve Vai

randy, i can't even believe this is being asked. zakk wylde is an image, a moniker, yeah he's good, but no one really bothers looking past his biker clothes and bullseye lp. randy was the real deal, he did it for the guitar only.
I will fuc

You DO know Zakk wasn't always in his BLS style all the time, right?



It's only been about 4 years or so since he started the whole biker thing.

To Scheter: I know that he may have used more gain and active pups (Zakk), but it was the way Randy vibratoed? the note or lack thereof that made me want to steal from old people.

i agree the live version of paranoid with randy rhoades in the solo just was horrible lol i love zakks pinch harmonics though

Randy!

However, I believe both guitarists are true virtuosos.

You can tell, without a doubt, who they are after two or three notes.
#24
What kind of question is this. A man with all his screws in tight knows that Randy Rhoads is a lot better. Zakk Wylde is a ****ing asshole who wishes he was like Randy and drinks so he can numb the pain of not being able to play like Randy or Dimebag(both R.I.P)...


but Zakk is a good guitarist but hes overrated

Wait a second..... Why wasn't Jake in the poll?



He definitely deserves it.

yeah he really is. On another note, what is with his image? He isn't "rough and tough and living on the street" He probably live in a million dollar + house, and drives a porsche. Randy all the way.
